Stuff

(I don’t really know what else to title this post.)

Yeah, I keep falling off the blogging wagon. One of these days I’ll post stuff from my camera and hopefully make substantial posts about my life, but for now, here’s a little list of stuff off the top of my head.

Things that give me an incredible high

1. Pouring all my emotion into playing piano, be in in the practice rooms or in front of a captivated audience.
2. Being completely inspired and creating a work of art or a design that is as good or better than the vision in my head.
3. Successfully fixing code after hours of frustration.
